While it is sad that anyone has illness or an autoimmune disorder we are pleased when celebrities let the world know they have an illness, as it helps get that illness better known.
Early in 2012 Nick Cannon announced that he was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease called lupus nephritis, which was the cause of his kidney problems and blood clots in his lungs.
Under doctor's orders, I have been asked to put my health first and cut back on some of my professional commitments in order to allow my body to get the rest that it needs to keep up with the demands of my multi-tasking schedule.
Lupus nephritis is an inflammation of the kidney caused by systemic lupus erythematosus, called SLE or Lupus, a disease of the immune system. Apart from the kidneys, SLE can also damage the skin, joints, nervous system and virtually any organ or system in the body. Find out more about lupus in simple to understand language.
